Summer time

Summer time may have been beckoning me outdoors with warmer than normal temperatures, clear blue skies and sun soaked days, but not before casting on a little something for my Gotz girls . . . .  

New from my needles this summer


A summer inspired tunic sweater designed to fit American Girl ® dolls

&  18” Gotz dolls like my model Elisabeth & Julia from the Precious Day Collection ™



Lagoon offers an opportunity to work new stitch techniques & textured stitch-work all packaged into a stylish tunic sweater that is suitable for early evening summer breezes after a sun soaked day



 also fits 18” Madam Alexander dolls like my model Abbie

Construction: Worked flat; back and forth in rows.
Front and back each worked the same in one piece bottom up to neckline, with shoulder fastening closure for ease of dressing. Drop short length sleeves created from picked up stitches and worked top down, then seamed along with sides of sweater that features side vents


These completed hand knitted outfits can be found in my

Thanks for looking ~ Deb
